Osaka powers into semi-finals with Tsurenko thrashing

"She has taken a step into uncharted territory for Japanese women in NY", the paper added.

As for her strategy of attacking the net, she said, "I've been working hard on my volleys". And I'm just beginning. I was up and he came back.

"Osaka was in full throttle from the start", Nikkan Sports said in its digital edition, reviewing her 6-1, 6-1 quarter-final victory over Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko.

Marin Cilic will face Kei Nishikori three years after the 2014 final won here by the Croatian player in straight sets. But her killer instinct sets her apart. She's dropped just one set during the tournament.

Osaka had consecutive 50-minute matches earlier in the tournament, including a 6-0, 6-0 thrashing of Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the third round.

Nishikori, who missed last year's US Open after a season-ending wrist injury, joined compatriot Naomi Osaka in reaching the semis - the first time that a Japanese man and woman have reached the last four in the same Grand Slam.

The 20-year-old said she was nervous, claiming to be "freaking out inside" - though it certainly never showed.

With a win on Saturday in the finals, Williams would take the 24th Grand Slam singles title of her career and move into a tie with Margaret Court for the most Grand Slam singles titles in tennis history.

"New York is very nostalgic".

He play either No. 6 seed Novak Djokovic or unseeded Australian John Millman in Friday's semi-final. "I want to give them the best that I can".

As Osaka has climbed the ranks in women's tennis, her identity has been the subject of curiosity for many tennis fans. She then flew to Miami, where she promptly dismissed her idol, Serena Williams, in a dominant first-round win.

The crisis soon deepened for Tsurenko, who had needed the best part of three hours on Monday to beat Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova in a match where she nearly collapsed due to heat exhaustion. I remember I wasn't there for the match. "I'm really excited about that". "I feel a lot of support, and I'm really grateful about that".

The No. 14 seed was last year's US Open runner-up, losing to Stephens in the final, the only Grand Slam final appearance of her career. She is now based in Florida, trains with Bajin at Evert's academy in Boca Raton, and made the decision to play for Japan largely because of financial reasons - the Japanese federation offered more support money than the U.S. Tennis Association. Sevastova, as mentioned above, is competing in her first. I'm used to Florida heat.
